  1. Does Housing Benefit become statue barred and the usual 6 years I called to checked the amount.. and was told it's less than what Dukes Baliffs are requesting.. I have got them to put on hold for 28 days, while i check things.. But remember buying house in 2007... and all debts to council where paid off.. (Or so i thought) I apparently spoke with council in Jan 2013 about the debt.. Will do my checks with council But in mean time... do these sort of debts become statue barred if no payment been made in the last 6 years Thanks in advance for any help
  2. Thanks for the input all, much appreciated... So how do we defend? Is it a case of filling in the thing from the courts.... and deny all claims..
  3. The house we live in now, we only been here since September..... Son has not lived with us for the past 3.5 yrs..... The contract address was when he lived with us at not last address but the one before..... We just don't get on, sadly! We really need to resolve our differences (Now he is a much better person, I should make first move) I will get his brothers to update him, and advise him to call carters and make a full and final settlement offer..... as they no doubt bought the debt for peanuts
  4. How would he know they served at the address where he took out contract.... when he no longer lives there...... To serve upon my address, and presuming he lives with us is that not wrong? How does he deal with the claim form.... he does not know he has it? I only opened... (Wrongly I know) ... but I seen the Northampton bit through the envelope window...
  5. Morning All.... Plenty of views... No Idea's ? Are they allowed to proceed to county courts, without checking if said person lives at address? As stated, Son has not lived with us for over 3 years! If I never opened the mail, he would be none the wiser.... When I can find out where he is, he will more than likely make some offers... This surely is wrong.... with all mail be returned to sender... Any help or idea's appreciated
  6. Hi all, Firstly Lowell have been sending letters to my address, I know as via the Postcode on back and the PO box....

Now know the sly under hand here, as he clearly does not live with us... . They have purchased a debt from orange.. . so now they want to secure the debt via the courts.... Do we or

  11. It was witnessed them taking away another car! 3 cars my niece, and another girl there, they seen them loading another on to the back of the removal truck
  12. Got some further info, This is on the road, a public highway, there are parking bays, and 2 sign posts along the road. The sign post states Residents permit holders only, then 8am-8pm mon to sat and 12am - 8pm Sunday (This was from a quick glance of the sign on a phone) Even if you have illegally parked without a permit, surely they cannot just come up and tow away your car? Or can they?
  13. No one is going to try and make a claim, It was me assuming that car is stolen, as no one has told us it was taken away
  14. They state Clerical error! Was told on phone now they all the info of the household, they have made this decision! They have had all the info from the start, and also supplied again during the year!
  15. Hi guys, Just a quick brief up! Car parked in local area, and apparently it was illegally parked, and just picked up and towed away, Do companies have the power to do this without any notification? I have just had the call from me niece about it, I have firstly advised her take photos of where car was parked, also all photos of surrounding area, along with any signs that she can see, and also take photos, form away back from the signs if any. I believe it to be in an private land where they go to the Hub! Only reason why they know it was towed away, they seen another been d
  16. Hi All, Back in October this year I had a letter from councile saying I had been overpaid on both Council tax and housing Benefit Well I immediately got on the phone to sort the problem out, which then I was advised it was a problem within there system, and I had nothing to worry about! Great! Well then a few days later a letter confirming it was there error and no money owed! and all monies put back to where they should be. Also had a form to fill in with all who was living here and income for them, which I duly filled in, gave all proof as required, This is the same proof I pr
  17. Sorry for got to add, that she did pay for parking, but of course on shutting the door, its dropped the seat!
  18. Hi again all, I know there has been some changes within the parking system! This is for a family member, and I just want to put her mind at rest, as when you pay for parking you have to produce your other half of the Parking ticket to get a discount in store. Is this still just the case of ignore the letters that sent as per usual, as there is No Loss by the Lando owner, in this case Asda! Here is what was stuck to screen and inside. Look forward to the usual replies Uploaded with ImageShack.us

  21. How would I find out about Letting Agent being a member of any Professional Bodies
  22. Thanks for quick reply BRIGADIER2JCS Is that a yes to just send the LBA to the letting agent? Do we address LBA to the LL, and change the 14days to 21 days. Who should then acknowledge the letter? The Agent or the LL? Also what about the 3x deposit?
